    Yet another total borefest in Valencia, despite all the DRS, KERS and relatively fast deteriorating Pirelli tyres (which although didn't deteriorate much in Valencia). There was overtaking, however pointless as that didn't change the result much.

    All the top 10 drivers in qualifying ended up in top 10 at the end of the race, except for Schumacher who had an accident, which was the only reason he was not in final top 10. Vettel, Massa, Button and Rosberg in fact ended up at the same position they started.

    Proved that no matter what technology you bring in this Valencia circuit, it will continue to remain an extremely boring event for the spectators. It is Monaco without all the glamor, celebrities, scenery, buildings, etc. Even the accidents frequency is low as compared to Monaco where the circuit is narrow and a slight mistake brings the safety car, hence the fun.

    Someone pls. bring back the Nurburgring circuit to host European GPs!

    @Khurem..
    couldn't agree with u more buddy.. though i didn't watch but i don't see any point in watching anyway .. this just remind me of Schumacher days..

    good for ALO but Ferrari should start working/focusing on next years car..

    i m also in favor of Nurburgring...


    ALONSO: "WE'RE HAVING A VERY BAD YEAR"

    On the eve of the European Grand Prix at Valencia, Fernando Alonso said all is not lost in his and Ferrari’s quest to win the world championship this year, but admitted that the team was having “a very bad year.”

    He also said that his own performance is as strong as at any time in his career and compared his performances to his team mate Felipe Massa, “These seven races.. I think I drove the best seven races of my career, with the best qualifying laps, compared to my teammate, compared to last year,” he said.

    After a slow start where he qualified fifth in the first four races, Alonso had a chance to win both the last two races in Monaco and Canada, where he qualified second, but he wasn’t able to make it happen.

    Speaking on Thursday he said, “I think we need to have the best car. If we have the best car we can win the title because there is plenty of time and plenty of races to recover. If we are fifth or sixth, as we are normally in qualifying etc, it’s very difficult because you cannot get the pace that everybody is doing.

    “I think the championship is long. We need to concentrate, race by race. We will try to be on the podium, we will try to win every race we do. Obviously this is sometimes very difficult or impossible but this is our aim.

    “This is also some pressure that you have when you are at Ferrari or when you are Ferrari. You need to win every race that you do, you need to win every championship that you do and despite these seven races when I think I drove the best seven races of my career, with the best qualifying laps, compared to my teammate, compared to last year, comparing different years, the starts etc.

    “Even with that, it seems that the season has been a very bad season so far, which, in some ways I agree with, because we are Ferrari, we are obliged to win every race but in some other ways, I think we need to understand and respect our rivals and to work harder than them and to close that gap in the near future.”

    Alonso didn’t want to raise hopes that the changes in the off throttle diffuser rules from Silverstone and the engine mapping changes this weekend in Valencia will put the Red Bulls behind the Ferraris. He sees it that Red Bull have the performance to be able to push when they want to and take it easy at other times.

    “I don’t think it (the rule change) will massively change qualifying. I think Sebastian was quickest in qualifying (in Montreal). It’s true that it wasn’t one second, it was two tenths, but he was the quickest in wet conditions at the start of the race.

    “We were following him and he was nearly eight tenths or nine tenths quicker than us on Sunday with race mapping. We saw a superior car at that moment, a dominant car, the Red Bull, in qualifying and in the race as well. It seems that sometimes they push a little bit more, sometimes a little bit less. Because of that, in races you seem a little bit closer.”

    Default European GP

    European GP - Best result of the season in Valencia. Fernando second, Felipe fifth after attacking from start to finish!!!
    -Formula 1 - Season 2011 -260479
    The European Grand Prix produced twenty eight points for Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro, thanks to a second place for Fernando Alonso and a fifth for Felipe Massa. It is the best result of the season for the Maranello team, which came at the end of a very closely contested race, as indeed had been predicted earlier in the weekend. After eight races the drivers’ positions in the classification remain unchanged, with Fernando fifth and Felipe sixth and also the Scuderia is still third in the Constructors’ championship. The next round takes place on 10 July at Silverstone, at the circuit where Ferrari scored the first of its 215 Grands Prix victories sixty years ago.

    Stefano Domenicali: "Our only target has to be the victory- we are Ferrari after all – but today, all things considered, we can be pleased with this result. It was an exciting and very evenly matched contest: Fernando and Felipe drove great races, fighting right to the end with their main rivals. The Spanish driver, in front of his home fans, managed to end up ahead of a Red Bull to secure a fantastic podium finish".

    Fernando Alonso: "I was determined to get on the podium. In my trophy collection, the only ones now missing are from the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and, naturally, India. I hope I can complete the collection by the end of the year! I was really pleased to taste champagne again, especially in front of this lovely crowd in Valencia, an amazing city where there is a great passion for racing. This result means a lot to me. It’s hard to see the grandstands when you are driving, but I could feel there was great enthusiasm when I passed Webber. This is a positive result for the whole team, as it confirms we are working in the right direction".

    Felipe Massa: "It was a good race spent constantly fighting other drivers. I tried to get the most out of the Option tyres because we reckoned that with the Prime, our pace was not at its best. It was a shame about the problem at my second pit stop, when I lost those four or five seconds which cost me the chance of fighting Hamilton for fourth place. I think that, from what have seen in performance terms, today we should have got both our cars ahead of the McLarens, and we only half succeeded in that. I got a very good start, passing Hamilton and Fernando. Then, I also tried to attack Webber, but he closed the door on me and we almost touched, so Fernando got the chance to go round the outside and pass me back. I had a few problems with my second set of soft tyres, but with the next one, which was even more worn at the beginning, things went much better".

    Default European GP

    European GP - Biggest points haul of the season

    -Formula 1 - Season 2011 -260497

    Valencia, 26 June – Fernando Alonso had said he really wanted to salute his home fans from the podium in Valencia, after failing to do so in Barcelona five weeks ago and today he succeeded. The man from Oviedo finished a fantastic second in the European Grand Prix and, helping to bring home Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro’s biggest points haul of the season, Felipe Massa came home fifth. Almost inevitably, the win went to pole man Sebastian Vettel, the Red Bull Racing driver taking his sixth victory from eight races. Joining the German and the Spaniard on the podium was third placed Mark Webber.

    When the lights went out, Felipe got a fantastic start, shooting past his team-mate and Hamilton to come up behind second placed Webber. But the Brazilian got a bit boxed in by the Australian at the first corner, which allowed Fernando to come back again to take third, so that Vettel led from Webber and the two Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro drivers, with Hamilton, Rosberg and Button leading the pursuit.

    Already working towards Silverstone

    -Formula 1 - Season 2011 -260552

    There’s no pausing for breath in this hot summer of Formula 1. Even though the situation in both championships is not what was hoped for back in the winter, work goes on flat out at Maranello on developing the 150° Italia with a view to making up the performance gap that has developed over the past few months.

    The European Grand Prix produced Ferrari’s best result from the first eight races of this year, which is obviously a good thing, but it is definitely not the end product. Fernando Alonso’s second place and Felipe Massa’s fifth confirmed what was already clear from the two previous races in Monaco and Montreal, but it is still not enough, as the next challenge is to try and have a car that is equally competitive at tracks where aerodynamic efficiency is the key factor, such as Silverstone which hosts the next event, the British Grand Prix which is the ninth round of the season.

    Nurburgring is already hosting German GP this season after an agreement with Hockenheim for alternating the race between the 2 circuits. As neither tracks have the level of financial backing to host the race regularly at the same venue. Plus European GP should be a rotating GP between different countries of Europe rather then making it stick to 1 track for long period of time like Valencia have a deal of hosting the European GP till 2016.

    Ok, thanks genius83 I didn't know that. Personally, I like both Nurburgring and Hockenheim as they are traditional race tracks with nice flowing design and entertaining races. With these tyres, KERS, DRS, i'm expecting quite entertaining races in Britain, Germany, Brazil and especially Belgium (also hoping wet weather conditions there, as has generally been the case there).

    FIA Scraps Plan for 4-Cylinder Engines in Formula One

    Bowing to pressure from team owners, race-circuit managers and the series supremo Bernie Ecclestone, the governing body of Formula One announced Wednesday that it would shelve a plan to require 4-cylinder engines on all racecars in 2013.
    Under a compromise reached last week between team owners and the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobie, racecars would be equipped with 6-cylinder engines for 2014 and beyond.
    The decision may have partially undermined Jean Todt, the president of the FIA, and his effort to project a more environmentally aware image for Formula One, which was among his top priorities when he assumed office in 2009. Still, the 6-cylinder engines are said to achieve 35 percent greater fuel efficiency than the 2.4-liter V-8 units that have been standard in races since 2006.
    Under the plan originally put forward by Mr. Todt in December, Formula One teams would have been required to use turbocharged 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engines limited to 12,000 r.p.m., whereas the normally aspirated V-8s can rev to 18,000 r.p.m. Race-circuit managers argued that the lower-revving engines would detract from the races’ aural spectacle, which would in turn hurt gate receipts. The turbocharged 1.6-liter 6-cylinder engines take the middle road, revving to a 15,000 r.p.m. limit while reportedly generating about 750 horsepower, matching the output of the current V-8s.
    The FIA also ruled on a new energy-recovery standard for racecars. Currently, teams can run kinetic energy recovery systems, called KERS, which capture energy from braking that would otherwise be lost as heat. Dropping the “K” from the formula yields greater power, according to a statement from Formula One. The series also claimed that the more robust standard would make up for any performance lost in the switch to the 6-cylinder units.

    Martin Whitmarsh says America needs two grands prix per year

    -Formula 1 - Season 2011 -262770

    FOTA chairman Martin Whitmarsh wants Formula 1 to hold two races per season in America to enable the sport to 'conquer' the country.
    The McLaren team principal was speaking at Thursday's FOTA Fan Forum held at his team's Woking base. He expressed the importance of the American market to Formula 1, and added that he feels it is worthy of two races.

    "America doesn't need us, but we need to conquer it," said Whitmarsh. "In the past we didn't do enough. I think we need to go there; maybe we need two races per year.
    "We need to have a proper marketing programme and create the interest. We can't just have a race there and come back, we've actually got to try harder."

    Whitmarsh highlighted the east and west coasts of America as the best areas for the sport to target, but he added that he was hopeful the new race in Texas can be a success.
    "We've got Texas and I hope it's going to be a very successful race, but the natural place for us is east coast/west coast," he said. "There's a great opportunity there, and we've really got to make sure of it.
    "I think there should be two races, it's a big enough and important enough market that we should be over there. Long Beach, and around New York, those are the places where we can really create an interest in Formula 1."
    The McLaren boss added that he expects the sport to have to push harder to promote itself in years to come.

    "Formula 1 hasn't had to sell itself in the past, the fans have come to us," he added. "We've got to recognise that there's lots of competition in the entertainment business, we're just part of it.
    "We've got to do a lot better. We have to go there, educate, explain, promote and market our sport."
